the cia did, and when they crossed the did we couldn't talk to one another. in iraq we have begun. >> would you explain because the students may not understand why we have that gap. >> it was there for good and legitimate reasons which is we didn't want our foreign intelligence agency being active inside the country and perhaps this body, to use that word of the domestic event on american citizens and so forth, so the cia was cut with the foreign intelligence agencies. the fbi that operated under the rules and the wall, think law and order, the fbi was the internal intelligence agency. well, just to give you one example, a few nights before 9/11, a telephone call was made in san diego by one of the men who would ultimately be the suicide a hijacker to afghanistan, but we couldn't track across the boundary because we didn't want the tracking of the phone calls inside of the united states by the foreign intelligence. so, what i like to have known what he said a couple days before 9/11? when he realized that of course we had an internal attack on the security, we had to sew up the ga
] [inaudible conversations] >> we are getting word that former cia director michael hayden is here. a couple of the topics we expect to hear shortly will be how digital media has changed intelligence gathering including computer-generated attacks. >> good evening, ladies and gentlemen. oh, come on. good evening, ladies and gentlemen. [laughter] welcome to the jack morton auditorium and the george washington university. i'm frank says no. it is my pleasure and honor to be the director of the school of media and public affairs. how many students we have in the room here. how many elite schools do we have in the room? oh, we are outnumbered. for those of you who don't know, we have two areas of focus for undergraduate. one is journalism and mask medications and the other is political communications, and we will explain a little of both this evening. i would like to thank the staff and faculty and our national council who has helped make this possible. especially the national council who has great philanthropy that has helped events like this take place. for the elliott school, this is part of t
puts around him, too. with respect to chuck hagel and brennan, defense and c.i.a. just in the last week, their performance in front of the committees that have to confirm them has been pretty poor and that's not my judgment, that's the judgment of senators on both sides of the aisle. >> if you were in the senate would you vote against confirmation of chuck hagel? >> i would. >> rose: there are those who argue that this is personal with respect to chuck hagel because he said what he said with respect to the surge. is it for you personal? >> no, it's not personal for me. i presided or participated in the senate policy, republican policy for eight years. every tuesday when i was in town and i can't recall ever seeing chuck in one of those lunches. he wasn't sort of a very active participant as best i can tell from my perspective. i do believe that there are people that are far better qualified than he is to be -- >> rose: doesn't have the president some choice in determining who he ought to -- who he believes is the best qualified, who reflects his point of view and -- >> the senate also h
me as odd. you get talking points on november 16. patreaus told congress the c.i.a. didn't change the talking points. white house and state said they didn't do it. white house told the news changes were made because they pt didn't want al qaeda tipped off and the director of national intelligence said they made the changes because the al qaeda links were too tenuous. then they said the f.b.i. did it and the morrell said i did say f.b.i. i didn't mean f.b.i. i meant c.i.a. and then panetta said he believed at the time it was a preplanned terrorist atafnlg you can see for people it looks like there's a great deal of confusion there, yes? >> there's always confusion when you have a tragedy of that sort and americans are killed. the bigger, tragedy, though, jon, is we spent all of these months trying to figure out origin of talking points which were cleared at the highest levels of the intelligence community. in my opinion, not enough time doing the service we owe to our fallen colleagues. >> jon: this gets to my point though. this gets to my point. [cheers and applause] i think that'

a department of homeland security there is still this new treatment of the cia as if it is a branch of the military there is still a patriot act. but much of what president barack obama has done over the last four years heading into now his second term has been systematically undoing some of the major decisions of the george w. bush years. for example, the only decision and accomplishment of president obama's first term that is ranked more popular with the american people than killing osama bin laden, the only thing more popular than that was his decision to end the war in iraq. within days of taking office, president obama also issued an executive order, making clear that anything the previous administration did to cast some pseudo legal veneer over torture, that was over. that executive order made clear that torture was and is illegal. the president also ordered that the cia stop operating secret prisons around the world. after moving quickly, as i mentioned in the war in iraq, the new president also moved eventually toward ending the war in afghanistan as well. the end of that wa
